Epilepsy Awareness Month

Epilepsy Awareness Month

March is national Epilepsy Awareness Month. One in 100 people have epilepsy, but many don’t tell anyone their health status due to public misconceptions about the condition.

Epilepsy Southwestern Ontario developed Seizure 101 presentations to educate adults of all ages about epilepsy and seizure first aid. Seizure 101 Presentations brought you by the Chatham-Kent Public Library and Epilepsy Southwestern Ontario. The presentation aims to dispel myths, explain epilepsy, how seizures occur and how seizure disorders are diagnosed managed and treated. Participants will be able to identify different types of seizures, implement seizure first aid techniques and accommodate those persons living with epilepsy.
